WHO IS THE IFC AUDIENCE?

It’s actually impossible to describe the ‘typical’ IFC participant!

 

• While the majority of participants are involved in fundraising in one way or another, IFC also attracts leadership strategists, digital marketing gurus, innovative financers, socially-conscious artists, social impact consultants, in addition to CEOs and Heads (and hearts) of global organisations.

 

• IFC participants work for organisations ranging from major global brands, such as the International Red Cross, Greenpeace, and UNICEF, to small local organisations where they may be the only fundraiser supporting the whole organisation.

 

• Roughly half the delegates each year have attended previously, but the other half are attending for the first time.

 

• IFC participants hail from 60+ countries and 6 continents representing a wide range of ethnicities, races, creeds, sexual orientations and gender expressions.
